It’s only been nearly a week since I’ve picked up a brand, new AT&T version of Galaxy S2 but I was able to get a lot of things groovin’ such as root, overclocking, and already installed several custom ROMs. They work flawlessly on the AT&T version so there’s nothing holding you back from getting the best of what open source has to offer.

Some of you may wonder which 4G runs the fastest on the Galaxy S2. Well, since I’ve got all three Galaxy S2s here, I did a quick test in my backyard.
First of all, Sprint uses WiMax technology for its 4G service, which is theory can do up to 75Mbps download speeds. In the meanwhile, T-Mobile and AT&T both use HSPA+, which isn’t really 4G but it is faster than 3G.
After blockbuster releases like HTC Evo 3D and the Evo 3D, HTC announces another Evo series, this one with SIM card support for world roaming, the HTC Evo Design 4G.
Rather than stuff it with more extra features, the Evo Design 4G has been watered down to minimal necessities with 1.2Ghz single-core processor, 1.3 megapixel front-camera, 5 megapixel back-camera, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, 4″ qHD screen, 3G and 4G WiMax.
Looks like we are finally going to be able to see what’s “really” coming with Nexus Prime and Android Ice Cream Sandwich next Wednesday October 19th.
Want to upgrade your Verizon phone? Well we’ve got some great news for you, now through the 17th of this month, Amazon is offering both Droid Bionic and Droid 3 for just one penny with a 2-year contract, this also works for adding another line to your family plan.
Update: Market 3.3.11 is now available!
Android Market 3.2.0 has been leaked from Nexus Prime and floating all over the internet.
For those of you who want to figure out what the upgrades/changes are, you can install it on your rooted Android phone by doing the following:
T-Mobile is launching its version of Galaxy S2, a dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor-equipped T-Mobile Galaxy S2 is supposedly faster than any other previous versions. Whereas international Galaxy S2, AT&T Galaxy S2, and Sprint Epic 4G Touch included Samsung’s own dual-core 1.2Ghz Exynos processor, the T-Mobile has a different processor, we suspect this is due to different frequencies that T-Mobile is on.
